Eden Futures’ two new supported living services to the east of Hull city centre are taking shape, expecting to welcome users early next year. As a result, it’s recruiting 35 new support worker jobs over the next three to nine months to facilitate this.
Construction is on track. Opening mid to late January 2021, the first service is 13 self-contained apartments retrofitted in an existing building. The second is eight new build specialist bungalows which are accessible for people with physical disabilities with built-in assistive technology.
Eden Futures is working with developers Preston Rd Developments Ltd, social landlord Hilldale Housing Association and the commissioning team of Hull City Council on these expanding services which are within 30 miles of its existing services in Bridlington, Goole, Cottingham and Scunthorpe.
Dave Whittock, director of service development, says: “We’ve helped many people to live in their own home in their own community. This is achieved by working alongside them with the cooperation of developers, commissioners, landlords and health professionals to identify potential new sites with the right support system so they can operate sustainably.”
